A note to you

I ran across an quote some time ago.

It hit me like a ton of bricks, as they say, because the longer I live the more truth I see in it.

The quote has been attributed to a few people through the years.

It appears to belong to author Ian MacLaren, and I can’t find the definitive quote so I’m going to paraphrase.

He said something along the lines of, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

I just want to tell you, whatever you are going through, keep going.

Never give up.

You are strong enough.

This post is a response to Sue’s prompt, which is “encourage.”


  1. Casey: Well said. It reminds me of what Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer I have overcome the world.” I have discovered with God’s help I will always make it. As usual a great post.
